About the syllabus service

The Course Reserves and Syllabus Service makes online, print, and media resources available to students to support the curriculum.

Our Syllabus Service provides easy access to these resources for your students, respecting the University of Toronto's license agreements with publishers and vendors, Canadian copyright laws, and the University's Copyright Fair Dealing Guidelines (Revised January 2023).

Syllabus Service staff will use the Library Reading List application to organize library resources within an easy-to-use course reading list that is integrated with Quercus. The application combines electronic articles, streaming media, digitized content, physical materials, and more into a single list so that students can access all their course materials in one place.
